Dollar General Opens Blair, Nebraska, Distribution Center; Jeff Owen Comments
BLAIR, NE - A new distribution center has opened up in Blair, Nebraska, for Dollar General (DG). The retail chain’s new distribution center is the company’s first dual facility combining the efficiencies of traditional and DG Fresh supply chain functionalities and represents an approximate $140 million investment in Washington County.
“Today’s celebration not only marks another growth milestone for our global supply chain teams, but also reflects our continued investments in Nebraska,” said Jeff Owen, Chief Executive Officer. “On behalf of the entire Dollar General team, we are grateful for continued partnerships and support from state, regional, and local teams, particularly from Governor Jim Pillen, the Gateway Development Corporation, and the City of Blair. We are confident this project will enable us to better serve our customers, provide our employees with career opportunities and foster a longstanding, positive relationship with the Blair community.”
The roughly 1-million-square-foot facility is expected to create more than 400 new career opportunities and support more than 1,000 DG stores at full capacity.
Currently, Dollar General employs more than 1,700 Nebraskans across its store and distribution center presence.
